Far Cry 4: Cliff Martinez confirmed, soundtrack announced

It has long been rumoured that Cliff Martinez wrote the score for Far Cry 4. After all, he accidentally leaked his involvement in the project on his official website even before the game was announced. However, it has finally been officially confirmed that he is indeed penning the soundtrack for the Himalayan-set open-world title.


Invada Records have announced that they will publish the game’s official soundtrack. Featuring two physical discs of Martinez’s music for the game, the Far Cry 4 Soundtrack is available to pre-order at Amazon now ahead of its December 2 release. The label were previously responsible for the physical soundtrack releases for Watch_Dogs and Blood Dragon. In addition, a digital release featuring 30 tracks from the game is available through iTunes tomorrow.

A prolific musician, Martinez is best-known as the former bassist of the Red Hot Chili Peppers and the composer of the film scores ContagionDrive, and The Normal Heart. Far Cry 4 marks his second video game score, following a co-composer role on Spore alongside Brian Eno.

    Thank GOD!!!! I was waiting like crazy for this news! Thanks for posting this! ^_^

  2. I actually made an exclusive announcement about this over a week ago, but was told to take it down!

      Aw… that sucks. I was bugging UBI every other day via the other site, just asking them for the composer’s name. Ubisoft knows how to keep quiet!

      I am hoping that they give me a review copy for the game, as I have already applied for it… fingers crossed!

      seen this yet?
      So far it sounds like Cliff has mixed western rhythm with bollywood-ish melodies.

      I don’t get why they bothered to forbid it, it was on Amazon and on distributor’s Redeye public catalog at least since Oct. 23 together with Martinez’s name…

      Oh well, loking forward to the CDs and hoping they’ll have some extra tracks compared to the today’s digital version.
